|About the Book|
The lyrical poems in this slim collection reflect on nature, close attachments, and the feel of life. Richard Farwell, a Chicago businessman, wrote them in quiet hours over a period of forty years as a stay against the confusion of work and a creative response to poets he most admires Frost, Hopkins, and Heaney. His musings are gentle touched with whimsy here, wistfulness there, wonder always. The recognitions he leads us to, though quiet ones, are well worth finding.
